SELECTMEN'S REPORT 



During the past year, the Town completed several tasks that have occupied 
its attention for some time. Last March, the Town overwhelmingly voted No" 
to a change in zoning that would have allowed the siting of a large commer- 
cial landfill in the northwest corner of Henniker. In a precedent-setting case, 
the courts ruled in the Town's favor for assessing a penalty against a lan- 
downer who had not followed a forest management plan even though his 
land was in "current use" taxation status. The water commissioners install- 
ed a system for reducing the corrosiveness of the Town's drinking water; 
thereby reducing the amounts of lead, copper, and other elements that 
dissolve into the water. The Town purchased the site on Maple Street for 
the new Public Safety Building that is sorely needed by the Fire and Police 
Departments. In October, the Transfer Station that permits the Town to take 
its trash to the incinerator in Penacook began operation and recycling efforts 
expanded to include newspaper and cardboard. Other projects completed 
include the testing of all the Town's underground storage tanks with removal 
of some and recycling of others; the design and contracting of Phase I of 
the cemetery water line replacement, and the rebuilding, repaving, and seal- 
ing of Town roads. 

Projects continuing into 1990 include design and construction of the Public 
Safety Building; completion of the cemetery water line replacement; expan- 
sion of the recycling efforts, and repairing or sealing Town roads. New pro- 
jects proposed include building an addition onto the Tucker Free Library to 
provide accessibility to people with handicaps and replacement of the 
chemical disinfection system at the Charles E. Damour Water Pollution Con- 
trol Facility with an ultra-violet light system in order to meet new EPA stan- 
dards. Also proposed for 1990 are replacements of a police cruiser, of a 
Highway Department pick-up truck and of a fire engine. 

Other concerns facing the Town that will require attention and planning 
are expanding the sewer collection system, disposing of sludge, scheduling 
the repair of bridges, controlling junkyards, capping the landfill, consider- 
ing a proposed manufactured housing park, providing much needed space 
for the Town offices, and exploring the cost-effectiveness of establishing a 
Town Mechanic position to perform maintenance, repairs, and inspections 
of all Town vehicles. 

In September of 1989, Police Chief Thomas Hassler retired from the Hen- 
niker Police Force after twenty years of dedicated service to our Town. Chief 
Hassler supervised the growth of the police department from one full-time 
Chief to a complement of six officers while the Town grew from a popula- 
tion of about 2,275 in 1969 to about 4,075 in 1989 (a 79% increase). His 
"gentlemanly" manner and pleasant disposition helped Tom to overcome 
initial resistance to having a "big-city" police chief and helped him to be 
recognized as a friend to the citizens of Henniker. Chief Hassler has earned 
the respect and affection of a grateful community We all offer Tom, Rosemary, 
and their entire family our best wishes and are pleased that they will con- 
tinue to be an integral part of our Town.

by the Henniker Selectmen. The Planning Board recommends and sup- 
ports this proposal. 

This failed by a vote of: YES 341 NO 623 

2 . To adopt a Wetlands Conservation Ordinance which would protect and

allow "solid waste facility" as a land use permitted in the Medium Com- 
mercial (CM) Zone by special exception and to expand the boundaries

ford town line. This proposal was sponsored by the Henniker Select-

COGSWELL SPRING WATER WORKS 

BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS ANNUAL REPORT 

December 19, 1989, marked the Seventy-fifth anniversary of the creation 
of the municipal water supply for the Town of Henniker. We approach this 
milestone with both optimism and concern. Our optimism stems from the 
knowledge that proper material, installation, and management may help a 
system to provide good service for a long time. Our concern is from the 
knowledge that our system is getting along in years. 

We now, for the first time ever, are providing treatment of our water supp- 
ly. In November we started our Corrosion Control Program. This program 
includes chemical addition along with representative samples taken regularly 
and tested, to insure the treatment process is providing the results that we 
desire. 

Norman Bumford is our full time Water System Operator. Adding a full 
time employee was also a first time ever milestone. Part time assistance was 
provided by Donat Damour and Amy Patenaude. 

During the course of the year the following projects were completed: the 
installation of the water main to the cemetery on Old Concord Road, installa- 
tion of new water main on Gould and Prospect Street, replacement of six 
fire hydrants, the installation of corrosion control treatment, and work is be- 
ing continued toward the completion of our repair shop and supply building. 

We made some major purchases: 4500 feet of 6-inch water pipe, a "Hole 
Hog" underground trenching tool, and a utility service truck. 

For the coming year we hope to update our Rules and Regulations, to set 
up of a capital reserve fund, to replace some more fire hydrants, and to replace 
the water line on Temple Road. There are many other projects that we would 
like to do next year, but we feel that these alone will be a major undertaking. 

Future plans would be to install water meters and backflow prevention 
devices. This would involve a program to read and maintain them. Meters 
would allow a more equitable distribution of expenses for all consumers. 

We hope to continue providing an ample supply of good quality water at 
a reasonable cost. This to be supplemented with proper service and 
maintenance as we start out this new decade.

TUCKER FREE LIBRARY ANNUAL REPORT 1989 

The past twelve months at the Tucker Free Library were busy as usage of 
the library's services continued the steady increase seen in recent years. Cir- 
culation, which stood at 12,687 in 1978, has escalated to 32,337 for 1989. 

Although providing reading materials remains the primary goal, the library 
also strives to keep up with the requests of today's society. These include 
the need for more programs, information services and non-print items, such 
as audio books and educational video cassettes. 

Last year the ever-popular childrens' summer story hour and reading pro- 
grams had an enrollment of 222 youngsters. They did a terrific job and read 
a total of 2,197 books in the six allotted weeks. Numerous other events were 
staged throughout the year including film shows, demonstrations and talks. 

The Friends of the Tucker Free Library continued their strong support. They 
worked diligently at their annual book, bake and plant sale and during Old 
Home Days to raise money to help fund the childrens' summer programs, 
and also to purchase a set of history books and 31 audio cassettes. 

This past year was the third and final year in the library's capital improve- 
ment plan. Beginning in 1987, various necessary and overdue maintenance 
projects were undertaken. These included the reshingling of the roof, com- 
plete exterior and interior painting (involving intricate stenciling), replace- 
ment of windows with new, energy efficient models, repointing of the ex- 
terior brickwork and rebuilding of a chimney, refinishing of wooden floor 
and various electrical repairs. The actual library building is now in an ex- 
cellent state of repair. The next big undertaking will be to address a space 
problem in regards to the reference collection, and to make the library handi- 
capped accessible to better serve all patrons. 

The library continues to benefit from the proceeds of its trust funds, in- 
cluding the town trust funds. Very generous donations were received for the 
Sanborn Conner Brown and Marjorie B. Bennett Memorials. These, along 
with the James W. Doon and Scott J. Berry Funds, allow the purchase of 
important books in various fields of interest. The library is honoured to be 
the recipient of these funds. 

The Tucker Free Library would like to publicly acknowledge with gratitude 
the support, gifts and help which it constantly receives from the community.

COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM 



For the past twelve years, the Kearsarge Valley Community Action Program 
has been the focal point of social service delivery in this area, providing help 
when needed to the income-eligible and elderly, as well as to the community 
at large. 

Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc., generates 
funds through the mobilization of available federal, state and local monies. 
Support for the local Area Center comes from a combination of federal ap- 
propriations and local tax dollars, so that the Kearsarge C.A.P. can provide 
Henniker with a variety of services from programs for local needs to outreach, 
referral, and direct assistance. 

The town's appropriation of the requested $3,294 in 1989 resulted in ser- 
vices to Henniker residents whose total value was actually $42,441.99. These 
include congregate meals, meals-on-wheels, fuel assistance, USDA surplus 
foods, specific food supplements and medical and nutritional assistance to 
women, infants and children under the WIC program, and other programs 
most of which are limited to income-eligible applicants. For example, 35 
households received fuel assistance, and 76 households received surplus 
foods. A detailed summary of the past year's services is on file in the office 
of the Board of Selectmen.

CENTRAL NEW HAMPSHIRE 
REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission (CNHRPC) 
is an association of municipalities in Central New Hampshire. Seventeen 
towns and the City of Concord are within Merrimack County and two towns 
are within Hillsborough County. Sixteen towns, the City of Concord, and 
Merrimack County are members in fiscal year 1990. The Town of Henniker 
is a member in good standing of the Commission. 

The CNHRPC is organized under RSA 36:45-53, which states that the pur- 
pose of the Commission is to prepare a coordinated plan for the develop- 
ment of the region. The statute also enables us to assist communities with 
local planning activities. 

Three planners and one support person are currently employed by the 
CNHRPC. The staff prepares regional plans and provides professional plan- 
ning assistance to member communities. 

Our accomplishments over the last year include: 

Housing: We published Affordable Housing Needs in the Central Region in 
September, 1989. The report identifies the number of low and moderate in- 
come housing units needed and provided in the Region, allocates the defi- 
ciency to individual municipalities, creates targets by community for affor- 
dable housing, and recommends strategies for use by communities to ad- 
dress local housing needs. 

Regional Plan: We adopted and published the "Goals and Objectives State- 
ment" of the regional master plan. Being the heart of the plan, each objec- 
tive will be addressed. The regional land use element should be completed 
this fiscal year. 

Solid Waste: The Commission prepared and the Central New Hampshire 
Solid Waste District adopted the District Solid Waste Management Plan. The 
plan contains a long-term strategy to deal with landfill and incineration re- 
quirements, recycling, septic and sludge disposal, and household hazardous 
waste collection through the year 2005. 

Recycling: The Regional Recycling Task Force is investigating methods to 
implement efficient, comprehensive, and cost-effective recycling throughout 
the Region. The CNHRPC should soon receive a grant through the Gover- 
nor's recycling initiative to assist municipalities in obtaining and installing 
equipment necessary to operate recycling programs. 

During 1989 CNHRPC activities in Henniker included providing review 
comments on the draft wetlands ordinance; providing information for a Land 
Conservation Investment Program application; and providing development 
review assistance information to the Planning Board. 

Bill Klubben, Executive Director

COMMUNITY BAND 

The Henniker Town Band gave a series of eight concerts during the sum- 
mer of 1989. The concerts were given on the New England College green. 
One of the eight concerts was given as part of the Old Home Day celebra- 
tion. The band members and I thank the Town for their generosity, the Col- 
lege for the use of the green, and the audience for its loyalty and enthusiasm.

II Summary 

The 1989 year was an exciting one for the Cooperative as the long awaited 
Plant and Ashfill came on line in time and within budget. When all factors 
are complete we will be entering the 1990 year with an anticipated $50,000 
in our Operating Reserve Fund and the same Tipping Fee of $36.45 per ton 
as we had in 1989. Including the shakedown period from April 89 to Aug. 
28, 1989, and the Commercial Operations from Aug. 28 to Nov. 30, 1989, the 
Plant processed 107,285 tons of refuse and the Co-op disposed of 41,529 tons 
of ash through its Operator, J.D. McLeod at the Ashfill. It is anticipated that 
the Co-op Towns/Cities will dispose of 120,000 tons of trash in 1990 which 
will be about 78% of the Plant capacity. Once again many thanks to the Co-op 
representatives who have spent many evenings in guiding this project to its 
present status.

CONCORD REGIONAL VISITING NURSE ASSOCIATION 

The Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association continues to offer three 
major health services to the residents of Henniker: Home Care, Hospice, 
and Health Promotion. 

Home Care Services respond to the health care needs of those patients with 
acute or chronic illnesses that require skilled professional and paraprofes- 
sional care so they may return to or remain in their homes. Emphasis is on 
promoting independence and maximum functioning of the patient within 
the least restrictive setting. 

Hospice Services provide professional and paraprofessional services to the 
terminally ill patient with a limited life expectancy. The goal is to enhance 
the quality of the patient's remaining life by helping the patient to remain 
at home in comfort and dignity. Emphasis is on pain and symptom manage- 
ment and skilled intervention to meet the patient's special physical and emo- 
tional needs. This is the only certified Medicare Hospice Program in New 
Hampshire. 

Health Promotion Services focus on the low and marginal income families 
and individuals to prevent illness by professional assessment and screening 
for health risks and needs, by early intervention to prevent, eliminate, or 
minimize the impact of illness and/or disability, and by anticipatory guidance 
and health teaching. Services rendered in the clinic setting are: child health, 
family planning, sexually transmitted disease, adult screening, immuniza- 
tions, and HIV testing and counseling. Home visits are made in crisis situa- 
tions or when needed health care cannot be given in the clinic. Senior Health 
services are provided at congregate housing sites. Professional and 
paraprofessional hourly home services are provided on a private fee-for- 
service basis. Emphasis is on promoting healthy children, families, and in- 
dividuals through early intervention and health teaching. 

Health Education and Instruction is part of each home visit or clinic visit. 

Anyone in Henniker may request service: patient, doctor, health facility, 
pastor, friend or neighbor. All requests are answered, but continuing home 
care will only be provided with a physician's order. 

A call to the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association (224-4093) be- 
tween the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. seven days a week is all that is 
necessary to start services or make inquiries. A Hospice nurse is on call 
(224-4093) 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m. daily. 

Federal regulations specify that a charge is applicable to all visits. Fees are 
scaled for a person without a health plan who is unable to pay the full charge. 
However, for fee scaling, federal regulations require that a financial state- 
ment be completed by the patient or responsible person. Town monies sub- 
sidize those visits that are scaled or that no fee is collectible.

This Agency is certified as a Medicare/Medicaid Provider, licensed by the 
State of NH and is a member agency of the United Way of Merrimack County.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 



In May, Ralph Luce retired and moved to New Mexico which left the posi- 
tion of Chairperson open on the Commission. It was filled by Craig Blouin 
and Zoe French as Co-Chairs. We extend our thanks to Ralph for his years 
of service to the town. 

Last year the town voted to adopt the Henniker Wetlands Ordinance which 
we had worked on for two years. This ordinance is an important first step 
in protecting wetlands and watersheds in the Henniker area. Toward this 
end the Conservation Commission has been actively performing site inspec- 
tions on proposed construction projects in wetland areas and reporting their 
findings to the State Wetlands Board. 

A major project undertaken this year was sponsoring the Land Conserva- 
tion Investment Program Committee chaired by Brenda Wright and Zoe 
French. This committee worked very hard to educate townspeople and 
generate support for land conservation in Henniker. Our thanks to the many 
merchants and people who generously supported us. Although we have had 
difficulty attracting qualified landowners during the past year, we are still 
hopeful that we can develop a complete project and submit it this year. To 
date we have aided two landowners in placing conservation easements on 
their land. 

This past year we sponsored a one-week residence for Ingrid Dodge, a local 
high school senior, at the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests 
Youth Conservation Camp located at Camp Interlocken in Windsor. This is 
a valuable learning experience for Henniker's young people. If you have sug- 
gestions for a 1990 camper let us know. 

It was with regret that we accepted the resignation of Don Jones. Don was 
responsible for doing the wetland site reviews last year and we will miss 
his service to the Commission. 

If we are to continue the important work we did this past year, we need 
to recruit new commissioners. If you or someone you know would like to 
volunteer, please contact either of the Co-Chairs.

REPORT OF TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND STATE FOREST RANGER 

During the calendar year 1989, the State of New Hampshire experienced 
an average number of wildfires. The three leading causes of these wildfires 
are fires kindled without a fire permit from the Forest Fire Warden, children 
and debris burning fires that escaped control. All these causes are preven- 
table, but only with your help. 

Please help our town and state forest fire officials with forest fire preven- 
tion. By New Hampshire State Law (RSA 224:27b), "No person, firm or cor- 
poration shall kindle or cause to be kindled any fire or burn or cause to be 
burned any material, except when the ground is covered with snow, without 
first obtaining a written fire permit from the Forest Fire Warden of the town 
where the burning is to be done." 

Violations of RSA 224:27 and the other burning laws of the State of New 
Hampshire are misdemeanors punishable by fines of up to $1,000 and/or 
a year in jail and you are also liable for paying all fire suppression costs. 

The State of New Hampshire, Division of Forests and Lands assisted many 
towns in wildland fire suppression during 1989 including several large fires 
in Allenstown, Alton, Chesterfield, Concord areas, as well as the 100-acre 
fire on Mt. Belknap in Gilford. 

If you have any questions regarding New Hampshire forest fire laws, please 
contact your local Forest Fire Warden, State Forest Ranger, or the Division 
of Forests and Lands at 271-2217.

HENNIKER ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 

A newly-revitalized Henniker Economic Development Committee began 
meeting last winter with the goal of expanding Henniker's commercial tax 
base by encouraging quality businesses compatible with the town's character 
and environment to develop in town. 

After fielding a few requests from commercial realtors and a business in- 
terested in Henniker, the committee began to educate itself and inventory 
Henniker's special features, services, land availability and areas of concern 
for attacting businesses to town. 

In addition to laying the groundwork for Henniker promotional and in- 
formation pieces, the committee has: 

1) Become active in the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce Merrimack 
County Economic Development Task Force. 

2) Initiated a joint New England College/town project that consolidated 
the many sizes of Henniker maps on to an Autocad computerized system 
with overlays for topography; sewer, water and electricity lines; wet lands, 
aquifer; tax map; and other inventories. The computerized map system will 
be available to all town departments but will be especially valuable in pro- 
viding information on a particular site being considered for business. 

For the 1990 budget, the committee is proposing to prepare a series of in- 
formation sheets and an attractive folder in order to provide businesses in- 
terested in Henniker with an easy-to-use, customized information packet.

NEW HAMPSHIRE RESOURCE RECOVERY ASSOCIATION 

Membership in the New Hampshire Resource Recovery Association 
(NHRRA) provides municipalities with the following services: 

New Hampshire Cooperative Marketing Programs — NHRRA manages 
marketing programs for the following materials: scrap metal, glass, plastic, 
and paper. These unique programs enable members to move their recyclables 
to market in a cost effective and efficient manner. A Marketing Committee, 
made up of members, works with NHRRA staff to select the types of material 
to market and to negotiate contracts with end-users. 

Market Development — NHRRA staff and the Marketing Committee also 
work on developing markets for other recyclables. Currently, markets for tin 
cans, used motor oil and batteries are being explored. 

Technical Assistance — NHRRA staff are available to meet with members 
to discuss their questions and concerns about establishing a recycling pro- 
gram and to make recommendations on how to begin or expand their ef- 
forts. Recycling in New Hampshire: An Implementation Guide, a 130 page 
workbook produced by NHRRA, was developed to teach communities how 
to design and implement a recycling program. A copy of the Guide was 
distributed to every municipality in January, 1989. NHRRA staff and an 
Educational/Technical Assistance Committee meet regularly to develop new 
programs designed to assist recycling efforts statewide. 

Recycling News — NHRRA members receive this quarterly newsletter of the 
Association, which is filled with current market information, dates of up- 
coming workshops, informative articles on a variety of recycling topics, and 
reports on recent committee meetings. 

New England Resource Recovery Conference and Exposition — NHRRA is 
the organizer of this annual event, which includes three days of workshops, 
tours and information exchange amongst representatives from the United 
States and Canada. An extensive exhibition area enables attendees to see 
the latest in solid waste disposal and recycling equipment. The 1990 con- 
ference, to be held in June in Burlington, VT, is expected to attract 1000 
participants. 

Training and Education Projects — NHRRA staff are available to work with 
members on a variety of different projects, such as: designing educational 
flyers, arranging and leading training seminars, reviewing plans for solid 
waste disposal or recycling facilities, and preparing recycling plans or feasibili- 
ty studies. Communities with specific needs should contact NHRRA for more 
information.

POLICE DEPARTMENT REPORT 

I was asked to prepare an annual report for publication in this town report. 
I guess it would have been more appropriate to provide you with all of the 
annual statistics such as the number of accidents, burglaries, thefts, arrests, 
etc., but for this year anyway, I wish to use this space in a more informal 
fashion and speak to you about your police department. 

On September 18, 1989, I replaced Tom Hassler as your Police Chief. Hav- 
ing spent some time with Tom during the transitional period, it was clear 
to me early on that I had some big shoes to fill. Tom struck me as a true 
professional who had a great deal of respect and admiration in the communi- 
ty. I was truly impressed by Tom, his love for the community, and his police 
force. 

It did not take me long to be equally impressed by people working for him 
and now me. I found that they also were true professionals, a close knit group, 
with a true sense of community spirit. During the past few months I have 
learned much about the community through Tom and the other men. Soon 
my family and I will be moving here and hope to be active members of the 
community. We are looking very much forward to getting to know the many 
faces in town as our friends and neighbors. 

With a change in Police Chiefs comes a natural change in various aspects 
of your police department. During the past months I have heard some rumors 
and received some inquiries about how and why the police department has 
changed its way of conducting itself in the community. Although some things 
were bound to change, I wish to assure each of you that the department 
is in place to serve the community. Our goal is the same as yours, simply 
put, we want our town to continue to be a safe and peaceful place to live 
and raise our families. The department will always strive to meet these goals. 

In closing, I wish to thank the many, many people in the community who 
have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome in the town. To those 
of you who I haven't met yet, I hope to do so in the near future. I also hope 
that each citizen will feel welcome to come to the station to conduct business 
or better yet to just say hello! 

Timothy Russell 
Chief of Police

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT REPORT 

This year saw the end of the ''Dump" as we know it. The construction of 
the transfer station and start up of the Penacook incinerator marked the largest 
Public Works project in some time. The transition to this new method of solid 
waste disposal went very smoothly due to the patience, understanding and 
willingness to accept change by all of you that use the facility. Thank you. 
The start of our present recycling program got off to a slow start during the 
summer and is now going very well. We are now recycling glass, aluminum 
cans, cardboard, newspaper and scrap metal. There is a need for a building 
and recycling machinery to allow us to expand our efforts to plastics, steel 
cans and waste oil and better process newspaper and cardboard to receive 
a higher price at the market. The money that is received from the sale of 
recycled materials and the money that is not spent to dispose of the solid 
waste is money that we do not have to raise in taxes. 

The following roads had major work done this last year: 

Old West Hopkinton Rd. Paved 

Craney Hill Rd. Reconstructed and paved 

River Rd. -Shaker Hill Rd. Safety reconstruction 

Intersection and paved 

Ray Rd. Reconstruction started 

(continue in 1990) 

Western Ave. Guardrail 

Old Concord Rd. Guardrail 

Park St. Stone seal 

Flanders Rd. Stone seal 

Hall Ave. Stone seal 

Patterson Hill Rd. Stone seal 

Ruffled Rd. Stone seal 

Longview Dr. Stone seal 

Foster Hill Rd. Stone seal 

French Rd. Stone seal 

French Pond Rd. Stone seal 

Bear Hill Rd. Stone seal 

This year the EPA issued a new discharge permit to the waste water treat- 
ment plant. This permit requires more testing of the water that is discharged 
from the plant and a reduction in the amount of chlorine that can remain 
in that discharge. While some of the increased testing is being accomplish- 
ed in the laboratory at the plant some of the work has to be sent to an out- 
side laboratory. The change in the chlorine requirement has required the 
change in the type of disinfection system that is being used.

PLANNING BOARD 

ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1989 

Town voters closed a controversial chapter in the recent history of Hen- 
niker land use by defeating the article at Town Meeting which would have 
allowed Henniker Environmental Associates to apply for permission to 
establish a "solid waste facility" on the Henniker/Bradford line. An exten- 
sive debate demonstrated the concern for our town and its future by advocates 
of both sides of that issue. 

Voters also approved a Wetlands Conservation ordinance and a provision 
for gravel excavation in the Town. Excavation is now allowed by right in the 
Commercial Heavy, Commercial Medium, and Commercial Recreational 
zones, and by special exception in the Rural Residential Zone if access to 
the site is within 1,000 feet of a state highway along town roads. 

The regulation of excavations as provided in State law undoubtedly will 
consume much Planning Board time and energy in the coming year. Town 
excavation regulations were adopted after public hearings and the first opera- 
tion under the new zoning ordinance and regulations obtained its permit 
this year. The Gravel Sub-Committee under the leadership of Spencer Ben- 
nett is to be commended for its fine work in drafting these regulations. 

In addition to gravel regulations, the Planning Board adopted sub-division 
regulations, two sections of the Master Plan (Goals and Objectives, and Land 
Use) and the "Town of Henniker Water Resources Management and Protec- 
tion Plan." 

Consideration of a proposed 88-unit Manufactured Housing Park was 
another first for the Board during 1989. That proposal is currently under 
review. The scope and increasing sophistication of such projects has prompted 
the Board to seek help from a professional engineering firm in evaluating 
the impact of large proposals. 

The views of Henniker's citizens are a crucial element in the planning pro- 
cess and we urge you to attend meetings and hearings and to voice your 
opinion. 

Finally, I must note with regret the resignation of Lois Brown from the Plan- 
ning Board. For over a decade she has selflessly devoted much time and 
energy on Henniker's behalf and the Town is the better place for her wise 
counsel and hard work. Lois will continue her work in preparing Henniker's 
Capital Improvements Plan, her involvement with the Regional Planning 
Commission, and undoubtedly will continue in her role as the editorial con- 
science of the Town.

HENNIKER RESCUE SQUAD 
1989 ANNUAL REPORT 

The Henniker Rescue Squad celebrated its 20th year of existence with a 
very active year providing emergency medical ambulance services to the 
citizens of Henniker and its visitors. This dedicated team of volunteers con- 
tinued to upgrade their skills with an aggressive program of in-service educa- 
tion and attendance at regional programs sponsored at the Concord Hospital. 

During the year, two probationary members, Andrew Twombly and Kevin 
Mather, completed their emergency medical technician basic training and 
have completed their National Registry exams. Both these young technicians 
have been active on the Squad and have been voted into full membership. 
Andy has continued his service by volunteering with the Lake Forest Fire 
Dept. while away at college. Member Karan McEachern was accepted at the 
N.H. Technical Institute Paramedic Program, and as of this report is 
academically leading the class. Her advanced skills are already used in 
emergency calls for the Squad. 

The Henniker Rescue Squad has always been active in the development 
and planning efforts of the Central N.H. EMS District. One of the active com- 
mittees of the District involves planning and training for a mass casualty situa- 
tion in the greater Concord area. This regional planning and training paid 
off on Labor Day weekend at the Hopkinton Fair grounds. As the first mutual 
aid ambulance in at that scene, Henniker Rescue was able to work well with 
the whole team that day. Henniker, and all the area services, received a pro- 
clamation of thanks from the Governor during ceremonies held during EMS 
week. 

1989 Members of the Henniker Rescue Squad are: 

James Crane, Chief; George Patterson, Asst. Chief; Steven Randall, 
Treasurer; Elizabeth Lundberg, Secretary; Catherine McComish, Training 
Officer. 

Members: 

Varyl French, Patricia Luoma, Karan McEachern, Shelagh Mannix, Kevin 
Mather, Heather Musket, Michael Sanseiveri, Andrew Twombly. 

Probationary members: 

Catherine Murdough, Penny Quinn, Hugh Webb

REPORT OF THE VETERANS MEMORIAL COMMITTEE 

The Veterans Memorial Committee, appointed in consequence of a 
favorable vote on Article 28 of the Town Warrant at the 1989 Annual Town 
Meeting (March 14), met on five occasions between the dates of October 19, 
1989, and January 19, 1990. 

Exploratory discussions were entered into with a view toward establishing 
some guidelines as to what constitutes a veteran within the context of our 
stated objective; the type of memorial which would be considered suitable, 
including various details concerning its appearance — chief of which was 
the question of whether or not to list the veterans by name on the memorial; 
the memorial's location; etc. 

Research was conducted to assist us in our assigned task by consulting 
with several neighboring cities and towns known to be recently involved in 
similar projects. The advice and recommendations of a local firm with ex- 
perience in fashioning such memorials was obtained. 

The committee's recommendations were submitted to the Town's Select- 
men following upon its January 19 meeting.

WHITE BIRCH COMMUNITY CENTER 

YOUTH PROGRAM SUMMARY 

The goal of the youth programs is to continue services to the children of 
Henniker as in the past. 

Last summer the White Birch Community Center Camp program had 90 
Camper spaces filled representing 75 different children in Pre-School through 
fourth grades. 
Proposed # of one-week camper spaces available in 1990: 120 

Outdoor Adventure weeks for youth in fifth grade and up included 8 days 
of activities and trips throughout New Hampshire. An average of 14 
youngsters participated in each trip representing 25 different people. In 1990, 
the program will be similar with the majority of programs held during the 
summer and several held in the other seasons. 

Proposed # of one-day Outdoor Adventure spaces available in 1990: 130 

The 1989 Halloween Party had over 250 people in attendance. In order to 
meet the demand White Birch held the event at the Henniker Middle School 
Gym and Cafeteria. In addition to the Halloween Party, White Birch also 
sponsors a Children's Fair, New Games Festival, Field Day, and other special 
events. We will continue with these acitivites in FY90. 

SWIM PROGRAM 

The 1989 Swim program served 40 children. We are continuing work on 
boosting enrollment up to 60 children. 

Proposed # of spaces available in the 1990 Swim Program: 80 

SENIOR CITIZEN PROGRAM 

In 1989, White Birch had 275 Senior Citizens on our mailing list. Our goal 
is to continue with local trips, special events and the Collette Tour packages, 
while providing a consistent series of luncheons, afternoon, evening events, 
and summer activities. The support of our Volunteer Senior Citizen Coor- 
dinator, has kept increases of expenses minimal. We continue to move for- 
ward using our resources more efficiently.
